As it’s Norwegian Constitution Day showing a great series by Øystein Sture Aspelund
The series is a collection of temporary installations of smoke, light, and fire set in the unspoiled Nordic landscapes. The red light contrasts strongly with the background casting an eerie glow like something from a science fiction film.
Thematically, the series is examining our relationship with the landscape and natural habitat. It is focusing on how we, as humans, interact with our natural spaces and environments. Raising awareness and presence, the series is aiming to create a symbiosis with the installations and its surroundings, while at the same time reflecting on the so-called Anthropocene epoch we live in today.

A passionate landscape photographer with a blur technique. Firewall is an abstract woodsy scene that incorporates natural light glowing like fire through a cluster of trees.
Director Damien Krisl had the creative vision to visualize a deity. Beauty, weightlessness, mystery and art were key aspects of the concept. The objective was to mix the elements of fire and water.
It was intended to create strong contrasts. On one side the deity had to have the beauty, femininity and delicacy of a seahorse and on the other side the strength and evilness of a dragon.
In ancient Greek mythology, Amphitrite was a sea-goddess and wife of Poseidon. Under the influence of the Olympian pantheon, she became merely the consort of Poseidon, and was further diminished by poets to a symbolic representation of the sea. The clip shows the invocation of the goddess.
This is truly amazing, stunning…..blown away
